Custom Patterns - HTML tag

Postby Josiah Hincks » Fri Sep 25, 2009 4:40 pm

The supplied pattern for HTML tags under Custom Patterns is:

Code: Select all

<(?:[^>'"]*|".*?"|'.*?')+>


I find it does not work with normal HTML well. For instance, here is a match it makes:

<a href="index.html">Home</a> &gt; <a href="learn_focusing.html">Learn Focusing</a> &gt; <a href="bibliography-index.html">


Can the supplied default pattern be improved so it matches precisely one tag?
